Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
This is the last time I'll look across this table
And try to face a feeling I don't even recognize
This is a sad hand, that reached across and touched you
When all we'd built around us came crashing to the ground
There was a tide turning somewhere deep inside us
When all these years together seem lost behind my tears
Oh there were good times, but in between the dog days
I felt the pain of rumour whisper in my ears
chorus:
But I still tried to love you, I still tried to care
Still tried to hold on with the power of my prayers
But you can't fight the rumour, you can't argue with you heart, no
Once the rumour spreads, once the rumour spreads
Once the rumour spreads, the truth is just a thing of the past
As the rain falls I listen to the radio
And try to memorize the words to "Georgia On My Mind"
But we're no old song, we never stood the test of time
The lies inside the rumour left us far behind
(repeat chorus)
And when we say goodbye, be sure to look me in the eye
And know the real secret was the thing we didn't have to hide
(repeat chorus)
Once the rumour spreads, once the rumour spreads
The truth is just a thing of, it's just a thing of
The truth is just a thing of the past
